Release date 16th March.

So, an Aussie Psychedelic Bubble it is then:

Product Description

RELEASED 16th MARCH 2015
PRE ORDER NOW. AVAILABLE ON DOUBLE CD

After two years of extensive crate-digging and foraging the Amorphous Androgynous return with the latest installment in their award winning series ‘A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble (Exploding In Your Mind) – The Wizards Of Oz’, released through Monstrous Bubble Recordings and Australia’s iconic Festival Records on 16th March 2015.

‘The Wizards Of Oz’ is devoted exclusively to the rich heritage of cosmic space music of our Antipodean brothers and sisters and in common with previous volumes traces the lineage from the sixties to the present day with sonic delights from every decade in between.

Across the double CD there is a 2 hour DJ mix of 34 tracks where we are treated to everything from Kiwi Krautrock to Aboriginal space jazz to OZ dream pop to cOZmic funkrok: CYBOTRON / TAME IMPALA / KANGURU / RUSSELL MORRIS / GEOFF KROZIER & THE GENERATOR / HIROSHI & CLAUDIA / MADDER LAKE / ROB THOMSETT / MANDU / DOUG JEREBINE / POND / SONS OF THE VEGETAL MOTHER / RAILROAD GIN & AIR are just a few of the delights contained therein.

Excellent! How bizarre, those clips have been there on the fsoldigital soundcloud page since 19th December.

Really like the Cybotron one, I'll admit I've never heard of them. They sound kind of a bit like Tangerine Dream meets Tim Blake. Groovy pic of them on their Wiki page:

Very nice. I'm curious as to what New Zealand psych bands they unearthed. Cybotron are very good. I discovered them by accident looking for Juan Atkins' Cybotron back in the early naughties. Very Berlin-school / Hawkwind-ish.

'Oz dream pop' - a chance to throw in some Dead Can Dance, surely? I'll be surprised / disappointed if there's none on there.

Gotta say I'm looking forward to this more than any of the previous ones, largely because it's been a journey of discovery for the band as well as for listeners - so I'm sure there will be a lot of surprises in there. Can't wait!

Yeah, I was checking out their soundcloud page two days ago - it was just the two mixes.

two questions:

- Is this officially Vol.4 in the 2xCD MPB series, or is it a stand alone release ?

- Who hooked them on Aussie psyche music? (my vote would be Mr. Riphead, since he lives in New Zealand for quite some time...)

Dougans says it is the 4th in the series of official 2xCD MPB mixes.
- The hook on Aussie cosmic space music was Gaz having a chance talk with someone - 2 years ago! They've been digging ever since.
- The final selection was between 100 and 150 tracks -- and it was mixed/dropped several times before the final mix was done.

- bonus: there will be VINYL version also :)

Shame I missed out on the first three releases on CD. Might start my collection of them from here and then try and pick the others up for an OK price somewhere down the road :)

Great they have Tame Impala on it. Absolutely love their two albums. It´s by the way the only band/artist I know from the tracklist.
That Cybotron-thing on soundcloud is awesome.

Bonus tracks for the CD-/physical release only I guess?
